Great staff, great atmosphere

I was a little worried after reading some bad reviews on here but I needn't have been. Me and 3 friends came for picnic bench afternoon tea and I was so impressed. Very quirky and different compared to your traditional afternoon tea. I was also really impressed that the staff asked straight away if anyone was vegetarian and gave two... More

Booked via the website and paid a deposit as requested. Seated on arrival and tea and coffee served straight away. The picnic bench contained banana milkshake, mini lamb burger, carrot and coriander soup, humous and pitta, calamari and chips and feta salad and then eton mess, walnut cake, lemon posset and a homemade biscuit and macaroon. Good value for money,... More

Very noisy, service quite slow they did apologise said they had a big party in. My son I law found a hair in his salad. We have dined at the fox quite frequently and this was disappointing.

We had the entire top room to ourselves for a birthday meal. It was lovely to have th whole room to ourselves, and they even made up a special set menu for us. The food was delicious as always- especially the puddings. The child portions were very generous. Would definitely recommend, especially if you're looking for a venue for a... More

Booked a table for 11 people for a friends birthday for 7:15pm on a Saturday night. Over the phone we were advised that it may be a little later as they were busy, which was fine with us as we planned to have a drink at the bar. It got to 8'o'clock and we finally chased someone up about the... More

On Saturday myself and 15 others enjoyed a brilliant afternoon tea here for my sister in laws baby shower. It was lovely and the food was delicious. It was enjoyed by all and many couldn't believe the value for money. Quite a few people hadn't been to the fox before but said they would be coming again. The staff were... More

A treat from our daughter and son-in-law, who attended also. Afternoon tea, or so we thought! Upon arrival, we were presented with a mini picnic table of delights, per two people. Included were tomato soup, prawn cocktail, Serrano ham ciabatta with mozzarella and rocket, small quiche tartlets, fish goujon and wedges, all served in a unique array of containers. These... More

Beautiful evening meal to celebrate my birthday organised by my husband. Pre meal drinks in the bar area starting with a delicately made cocktail which was delicious. Shown to our table which was spot on time, stylish cosy but also contemporary. Fabulous menu, great service and excellent food. We will be returning.
